Making of Champions

 

How many millions of people are talking about the incredibly exciting NCAA championship football game on January 9, with Clemson defeating Alabama with one second to go? Amazing performances by both teams!

The next morning, William Day–a former Ole Miss player–wrote a terrific description of what it takes to reach championship level play. He gave me permission to reprint his thoughts. I invite you to read them now:

APPLY THE SAME PRINCIPLE TO YOUR BUSINESS CAREER

Imagine applying the same level of goal-setting, determination, and discipline to your business. As you read biographies of the most successful business leaders, you know they do exactly that. As William Day said, there are no trophies for merely participating.

Remember William Day’s guidelines for becoming a champion. Yes, they work in sports, business-and life!

And yes, you see William Day in action above, tackling a Notre Dame player in a game that became one of Ole Miss’ greatest victories.

Managers–Quit Meeting, Start Eating with Employees

KOLKATA, INDIA - JAN 18, 2016: Visitors of popular Indian Coffee House have lunch on January 18, 2016 in Kolkata India. The India Coffee House chain was started by the Coffee Cess Committee in 1936 in Bombay
If your business has a company cafeteria, my guess is that you have become aware of these mistakes that many managers make:

ONE: Thinking that they can’t get away from meetings for thirty to forty-five minutes, they continue to meet during lunch and have their meal brought into the conference room.

TWO: They walk to the cafeteria and get a to-go sack, bring it back to the conference room, and in this way only lose ten minutes of meeting time.

THREE: Managers show up at the cafeteria, but isolate themselves from everybody else at a table in the corner.

FOUR:
Managers once in awhile sit with an employee, yet only because they have a business item to discuss with that subordinate.

What do these dining habits say about these managers? Inescapably, that they appear aloof, distant, and uninterested in building relationships outside the senior staff circle.

So when a corporation brings me in to assess the company’s communication climate, soon I will bring the discussion around to what the managers do during lunch hour. As you can guess by now, I recommend that they:

–Show up and circulate
–Sit with different people every day
–Avoid talking about business. Chat casually about community activities, sports, families, and other topics not related to work.

Managers who follow these recommendations will create an image of being approachable, personable, and no longer stuffy. Employees will stop referring to them as “The Suits.”

NOTE: Don’t worry, managers, about what you have lost by interrupting your meetings. You have gained much more by your interaction with those who want to know you personally as well as professionally.
